Meet The Maker - Izzy

Meet The Maker, Izzy - the owner of @madebyisabelsophie, our small business scrunchie partner.

When and why did you start your small business?

"I started my business last May under the name ‘embroideredbyizzy’. I learnt to embroider during the first lockdown and decided to start an Etsy shop selling embroidery hoops! I then began to sell Scrunchies and decided I wanted to steer more towards Scrunchies, so I rebranded!"

What do you enjoy about having your business?

"I love everything about it! From the lovely messages I get from customers, to making the products, to packaging, to posting. Having my small business has genuinely been a lifesaver during the lockdowns, and I’ve never been more proud of myself. I work 7 days a week on my business and it’s never felt like ‘work’ because I love it so much."

"It's never felt like 'work' because I love it so much!"

More about Izzy and Made By Isabel Sophie

"I’m a full time student at the University of Lincoln, and I study Business Psychology! I also work in a restaurant (when I’m allowed). I’m an avid vinyl collector and I love music; I met my fiancé at a music university I attended for a year (I play drums!)."

Pictured below is the black and white polka dot scrunchie featured in The Ellesmere Box.


We hope you've enjoyed reading our Meet The Maker series, and getting to know the faces behind the small businesses. The makers are the people who do a happy dance when you place an order or share an Instagram post, the people who wake up early and stay up late to post your orders out, and the people who want to hear your feedback and reviews on each order. If you can, please do follow and support each of the businesses in The Ellesmere Box.

Thank you for reading and we hope you love the businesses as much as we do!
